Birthday Card for William

This is a commission card for a friend. I always find male cards hard and boys are even worse! I hope this isn't too babyish as I have no idea how old william is now. The image is a Lily of the Valley stamp. I've coloured with promarkers but had all sorts of problems with it bleeding - the card was too thin I think. I had to add grey edges and distressed with ink in order to cover up the imperfections. I was going to add some more embellishments but as it's only a 5x5 card it was a bit small for that. The papers were from dfferent pads but worked well together I thought. The letters were cut with a tattered lace die.
